Researching families in Ely
The bulk of the parish records for Ely are stored at the Cambridgeshire Archives & Local Studies Centre, and the Cambridgeshire Family History Society has transcribed a large number of records and made them commercially available.
The Cambridgeshire Archives and Local Studies centre will be moving to Ely from Cambridge soon.
Whilst the headstones in the grounds of Ely Cathedral have been all but cleared, although number still stand in St. Mary's Churchyard. The cemetery, which has taken burials since 1855 is still used for interments today.
Sadly, The Ely Society closed in the summer of 2015.
The Cambridgeshire Community Archive Network (CCAN) includes a collection of images of Ely, and is well worth exploring for those with ancestors (or memories of) in Ely.
